Curro Thatchfield Car Accident: Grade 1 pupil killed by speeding car during drop-off at school.
A grade 1 pupil at Curro Thatchfield in Centurion, Tshwane, was declared dead on the scene on Wednesday after being knocked down by a car, allegedly driven by a mother who had just dropped off her child off at the same school.
The school said it had counsellors shortly after the incident and said they will continue a programme of support over the weeks to come.
“Thursday and Friday this week will not be school as usual as we identify learners and staff who are in need of counsel. School will be open but our programme will not be academic but rather cathartic and remedial. If you prefer, please keep your child at home,” the letter reads.
